“Nurse Jackie” is getting at least one more season. Showtime has renewed the show for its sixth season.
“‘Nurse Jackie’ is an essential part of the Showtime brand, and we are thrilled with the series’ growth in its fifth season,” said David Nevins, president of Showtime Entertainment. “Under the new leadership of Clyde Phillips, and with an amazing cast led by Edie Falco, this show is as sharp and compelling and entertaining as ever. I’m excited to get to see the next chapter in Jackie’s life.”
The show follows a nurse who is amazing at her job but battles an addiction to prescription pills. Edie Falco, who plays the title role, has earned three Emmy nominations and one win.
The fifth season is currently airing on Showtime. The season finale of “Nurse Jackie” will air on June 16.
